Hello, friends! I apologize for this short post. We are dealing with some personal/family issues that took up a considerable portion of my day. At this point, I don’t believe including details of this matter in my posts would be helpful. I do intend to share more with all of you once I work through this for a little while. Now, on to happy thoughts! I worked this morning and then I was off to campus. One of my favorite Psych professors told me that he was retiring. Well, he said that Xavier is “re-organizing” and offered him an early retirement. I have to say I was a lil bummed. The fact that the university has let go of a some staff is frustrating. A big reason for me to attend Xavier is the small class sizes. But, I suppose many universities are doing some “re-organizing” these days.
I concocted a snack of mixed veggies, hummus, Amy’s BBQ and wasa flat bread.
The Wasa bread had VERY short ingredient list
They added a nice crunch to the mix. Plus, I love rye!
Lunch included this wrap: TJ’s ww flax tortilla with Amy’s pinto beans, fresh baby spinach, organic sour cream…I guess it was more of a burrito?
Obviously, I haven’t been posting pics of EVERYTHING I eat. But, I would like to once I get my own camera. I have heard or…read other bloggers say that it’s a pain. But, I think in some cases, it may be a good way to stay aware of what one is putting into her body and it makes healthy food even more fun!
When I got home, I made Snuffy some dinner and gave her a bath (I know, BORING). Later, Snuff went to her crib. Then, I made my low-carbin’ Mallard some down home devilled eggs. I am not a huge fan of mayo + eggs yolks (ewwwwww!). In fact, I grew up with Miracle Whip ( mayo’s low-cal, processed cousin). However, I DO love to cook for my Mallard. I use a basic recipe of boiled eggs, mayo, vinegar, mustard and paprika ( for visual appeal). I toss this combo in my kitchen aid and let it do the work!
Next, I put the mixture in a large re-closable freezer bag ( I don’t have a pastry bag 😦 ) and snip a hole in one end to fill the empty egg whites.
Wah Lah! Low-Carb Lovelies! I can’t wait for Mallard to be off of this diet…mayo and egg yolks….(shutter)
QUESTION: Do you ever feel like the odd woman out when it comes to eating nutritiously?
I work with so many people who suffer from everything from diabetes and high B/P to fatique and depression but don’t care to give their bodies the nutrition they need.
